Following left-wing harassment last week of conservative students at the University of Texas at Austin during their event supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, it was more of the same at Stanford University on Tuesday, as a female student was arrested for battery after allegedly shoving the president of the College Republicans over Kavanaugh support.
According to campus police, John Rice-Cameron said fellow student Melinda Hernandez “shoved him in the chest with her hand during a verbal disagreement” at tabling event in support of Kavanaugh’s recent Supreme Court confirmation, the Stanford Daily reported.
A post on the Stanford College Republicans Facebook page said its members “experienced the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left.”
Hernandez was placed under a private person arrest at Rice-Cameron’s request and issued a citation for battery, campus police told the paper, adding that the District Attorney’s Office will review the case and determine if further action is needed.
A College Republican member who declined to be named told the Daily that while Hernandez pushed Rice-Cameron, it wasn’t a “hard push,” noting that the group’s president didn’t hit the ground.
